"I had an incredible experience with skydive ratings for my coach course. I will be back for every rating that I pursue from here on out!"

Tyler Lingsch

I had an incredible experience with skydive ratings for my coach course. I will be back for every rating that I pursue from here on out!


"From my 1st contact on the phone with Skydive Ratings to my final slap of the hand & fist bump upon completion of my course, this Team was incredible every step of the way! Patrick was steadfast in keeping me in the loop & maintained contact throughout the 2 months leading up to my course. Thanks again Brother for squaring me away! I didn't get to work much with Bram, but it is obvious how passionate he is about good training- He has built one hell of a Team! When I heard he had 17,000+ Skydives, I was astonished!!! It is clear that he truly loves what he does, and that proper & safe training are of the utmost importance! Lindsey taught my Coach Course, and she was phenomenal! I must say that I didn't really know what I was getting myself into (meaning- I wasn't sure how much I was going to learn). By the end of day one, it was clear that Lindsey was a true Professional. She was a great Leader, Instructor, Coach, Mentor, and just an overall BA Skydiver!!! I learned so much in this course, and it has undoubtedly made me a far better/safer skydiver. Thank you Lindsey for all of your hardwork & mentorship! To all the other Staff that I did not have the opportunity to train with, Thank You too! Just observing the other Instructors teaching the AFF course was amazing to see. Everybody here has their **** together! Skydive Ratings is an outstanding Team, and I look forward to coming back for any ratings I pursue in the future! Blue Skies!!!!!!"

"Excellent school of instructors, learning at all times, with teaching methodology that does not tire the candidate, theory and practice taught alternately, which facilitates the learning and memorization of each activity. If you want to be a professional skydiver, I recommend Skydive Ratings."

"Many thanks to Bram, Chantel, Lindsey and Derek for a well-run, challenging (yet fair) and educational course. It's abundantly clear that they care deeply about the sport and even more deeply about training competent and knowledgeable Instructors. I've been through two of their courses and can't imagine going anywhere else!"

"I highly recommend Skydive Ratings school. I came all the way from South Africa to do TIE Tandem instructor Examiner presented by Bram and really guys he got the knowledge and experience in the sport. It's proven that a candle loses nothing when it lights other candles. I'll also recommend other instructor examiners candidates from Africa to attend such knowledgeable courses. Big up to SkyDiveRatings. TIE from South Africa Raymond"

"My expectations based on the coach course were that only the flight skills of the aspiring coaches would be evaluated, but once I have finished it, I have learned that it goes beyond that. Excellent staff with a very dynamic teaching program, a nice experience. Coach Rating Course the best."
